Unearthed Treasure

I was a young girl looking for meaning in my life,
Always wanting more than this world could offer.
Always searching, always seeking;
My soul would never find rest.
Every once in a while, I’d stumble upon a joyful soul
With a twinkle in merry-filled eyes,
And knew they must have been one of the few to find this hidden Treasure.
Oh, how I wanted to be one of these few.
I wanted to explore and discover the vastness of It.
I would cherish every piece of this sacred Gift,
For I acknowledged many sorrow-filled souls have never unearthed It.
I sought day and night; and in despair,
Apprehension told me I couldn’t find It on my own.
In my desperation, I uttered a downcast plea, for no ear to receive.
And to my astonishment, Purpose came seeking to find a home in my heart.
I found Him that day, the Meaning of my life,
And have shared Him with many-a-weary souls who have sought just as I.
Now, I’m spending eternity with this Treasure,
And my soul can now find rest.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
Matthew 7:7-8

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Matthew 6:21
